An inexpensive way to transfer money overseas

Their app and website is simple and direct, except for changing the country the Recipient do you want to send the money to. It took quite a bit of searching around to find out that I had to go to settings in order to change the country first and then I could find the recipient that I had previously sent money to. If you look under history, only the recipients in the country the country that’s presently selected will show up. So that way you cannot switch back-and-forth between different recipients. Without going to the settings and changing the country. Took a while for me to figure this out and the software in this case needs to be corrected to make that simpler. Other than that it draws money directly out of my bank account and only charges a very low fee if I do that method. There is an option of sending money by credit card or debit card, but you’d have to check with your bank about the charges involved with sending money to a foreign denomination. I just go with the less expensive simple withdrawal from my bank account.

Forget to send funds within the week if not Monday

I have been using this app since more than a couple of years now. I hardly had to interact with their service representatives since the app has a very good user experience. It just i got used to the waiting for refunds when the transaction is cancelled for any reason. Not everyone has that parience to wait 3-4 days to get the funds back.

The Economy transfer time (which is actually below the current market exchange rate) takes minimum 5 days to complete. And if started on Monday, it reaches the other end on Friday. Otherwise it will be received next week, if started the transaction after Monday of any week. It’s ridiculous to take so much time. The funds gets deducted from the account within a day and another 4 days you just wait to get it delivered. I really hope they deliver the money to the recipient within 2 days, but in reality it’s not the case.

On the other hand, for the same delivery account, if used the express option, the funds get delivered within 10-15 mins. Which is a pretty good option if you are in hurry and ready to lose some more $$ on exchange price.
